Abstract/OtherAbstract:
There are a manifold number of variations and anomalies of the origin and course of coronary arteries described in the literature. The incidence of such variations in the general population is reported to range between 0.3 and 1.6 %. Although uncommon, they may be benign or produce symptoms ranging from mild dyspnea to sudden cardiac death, and have been associated with an increased risk of accelerated atherosclerosis and perfusion defects. Thus, in order to effectively utilize the increasing number of therapeutic options available for treating coronary artery diseases, an appreciation of the likely normal and variable arrangements of the coronary arteries is essential. This review will describe the normal anatomy of the coronary arteries as well as the common variations with potential clinical effects.
